We recommend a completely different foods list than what is on the main website because many people have had major setbacks eating foods they thought were anti-candida, when they turned out to be feeding candida.
For instance, corn is very high in natural sugars…I hate to break it to you but its just not a good thing to eat while on the diet. Also, most corn is non-organic and contains GMO’s. It’s all about eating as little sugar as possible, and this is feeding the candida…maybe as much or more than rice.
Corn is also inflammatory:
Which brings me to the rice. It tastes good, has an OK nutrition profile, but it feeds candida as well…it contains high levels of starch. Thats why potatoes aren’t on the diet and rice shouldn’t be either. Most rice also is not organic.
Rice is also inflammatory:
Quinoa is also starchy, but inflammatory neutral:
Buckwheat on the other hand only contains 25% starch and is less inflammatory. Same texture as rice, tastes good, but is a prebiotic while corn and rice are not prebiotics.
